Fox may have a call to make after all. Wayward Pines‘ series finale on Thursday night drew 3.9 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating, rising 18 and 33 percent week-to-week and matching its demo high.
As such, Fox notes, Wayward stands as the top-rated scripted series of the summer, and is the only one to maintain at least a 2.0 in the demo (with DVR playback added in).
TVLine readers gave the finale an average grade of “B” and the 10-episode series overall an “A-.”
